3D Printing Shows Talocalcaneal Joint Very Well!

A surgical resident used the above 3D-printed calcaneal fracture to gain more insight in the fracture pattern during preoperative evaluation. Using this 3D printed model, the surgical resident was able to determine which part of the fracture had to be fixed first, second, and so on. During the surgical procedure, the resident used the model to remember which steps had to be taken to perform the best fracture reduction. The patient is already discharged from the hospital and is doing well.
